Some proper names come from an etymological root or are references to literary works. For example: Mary, Joseph, Jesus, Peter, Isaiah, are proper names taken from biblical texts and have been used throughout history. On the other hand, in the Western world, which is more influenced by the culture of the United States and other countries, more people with proper names such as: Emily, William, Alexander, Anastasia have emerged in the modern era.

Many proper names have an etymological root or meaning behind them, and this motivates parents to give them to newborns. For example, among the feminine names is Valeria , which comes from Latin and means ” healthy, strong, courageous” ; and among the masculine names is Luis , which comes from the Francian and means “illustrious in combat” , or “illustrious in battle” .
